Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

As I was driving on the highway the center support bracket for the drive shaft cracked and fell off , had to pull over as the truck was shacking like crazy.the drive haft was destroyed and cost of new one was $1200.00 without labor. this is only one of several problems with this truck.

THEY SAID ITS A WEAR AND TEAR DEAL AND OUT OF WARRANTY! I SAID HOW CAN YOU CALL IT A WEAR AND TEAR ISSUE THE DRIVE SHAFT BROKE IN HALF AT THE STOP LIGHT BECAUSE OF RUST AND NO OTHER PLACE UNDER THE TRUCK WAS RUSTY EXCEPT THE DRIVE SHAFT . ITS ONLY A 2004!!! I THINK FORD SHOULD TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY ON THIS ISSUE I HAVE AND THEY TELL ME THEY DON'T STOCK THE DRIVE SHAFTS FOR THAT YEAR 2004!! THEY CAN MAKE THE DRIVE SHAFT!! SO NOW WHAT I HAVE TO PAY MORE!! I NO THINK SO!! MY CLAIM IS THAT THE DRIVE SHAFT WAS FAULTY TO RUST LIKE THAT!! AND BREAK IN HALF MIND YOU NOW NOT AT THE JOINTS BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SHAFT!!
